Drifters is one of the best anime that was released this fall. Although that may not say much, as this season’s anime line up was bad, Drifters is still nonetheless a good anime. The anime centers around Shimazu Toyohisa, a warrior who gets wounded during battle and loses consciousness. When he wakes up, he finds himself transported to another world. Toyohisa meets other great warriors of the past in this world and collectively, they become known as the “Drifters”.
One of the interesting aspects of this series is that they use real historical figures. Characters such as Nobunaga, Hannibal, Scipio Africanus, Joan of Arc and many others appear in the anime. Drifters has an interesting plot as well. Not only will you see amazing action scenes, but the story will also keep you intrigued. You will also find out that this anime doesn’t have a ‘good versus evil’ scenario. It’s up to the viewer to decide whose side they are on. This makes the anime very interesting. If you’re into historical series that combines fantasy as well, then check out this anime.
In addition, if you enjoyed series such as Samurai Champloo, Fate/Zero, or other samurai/fantasy anime, then give this anime a try!
